Rillito River Park Path

This is a 10 mile multi-use path that follows the banks of the Rillito River east-west from I-10 to Craycroft Rd. Located 7 miles north of downtown, the path joins three parks and also goes by the Tucson Mall at around the mid-point. The path on the north bank is paved and dedicated to foot traffic, rollerbladers, and cyclists. The south bank is not paved and is dedicated to foot traffic and equestrians. Numerous bridges along the way allow crossing from the north to southern bank. While there isn’t much of a ‘river’ to see most of the year, there are also lots of flowers and cacti that line the trail.

Bathroom facilities and water fountains are available at each park, on the north side.
